I had also spent the week finishing the interior on the car... I got some goodies!

-I got 2 Kicker 5.25 Speakers, 2 4x6 Kicker Speakers, a Pioneer head-unit and, Some adapters from TLG Auto...
-I got a triple gauge plate, thats extremely well made from a Fiero guy on Ebay.
-Got a dual gauge pod for a 92 Integra off ebay for next to nothing too...

Here are the audio goodies...



Here is the speaker with the adapter plates...



I packed the whole dashboard with Poly Fill, This does wonders for the sound!!!



Here's the fronts installed...



The rears were tricky! First I stuffed the Pillars with Poly Fill, then used some thick foam to help the speaker seal since its much deeper than the ones...



Installing the Radio was pretty straight forward, and came out sick with the new gauges!!!



I then started working on the A-Pillar gauge pod...



I mixed some epoxy and clamped it down over night, then started to fill the transitions with Fiberglass....



Got it pretty smooth, then primed it to see where I had to use spot putty...



Then I dusted it with Bed Liner, to bring back the texture where I smoothed it from sanding, I then started to re-paint the whole pillar...



I used a slightly different shade, that I like better. You can see here.... I the repainted the other A and B pillars the same shade.



Installed the B-Pillars again...



And the new pod!!!! Came out so cool!!!!

The sound system sounds amazing!!!!! Between the sound deadening, nice speakers, and poly fill. It really sounds great! No rattles, and actually pretty good bass. I'm going to skip ahead a little, check out my Video's on You Tube!!! Its in 2 parts, and a pretty complete walk around of my car. Also I had my first successful fire-up!!! Please check out the video to hear her run, she sounds great!!!

I can't tell you how many hours I've lost to PFF & build threads like this. Another amazing job.

Oh yes! So I finished it last year, ended up throwing a rod though!! So took everything apart, its now back together with a whole new engine... Shes running great! I've test drove it a bunch, pulls like crazy on only 8psi so far! Check out my Instagram @Official_Thompsonspeed for current videos and pictures, I don't do PFF that much anymore..

Nice stereo install I'll have to give the polyfill a try. Does it make much difference? I have a similar Pioneer head unit (MVH-X580BS) and Kenwood speakers. Much better sound, but I figured it would never be "great". I'll have to give this a shot.
